Joanne Elphinston is a movement philosopher, performance consultant and international lecturer in rehabilitation. She began her professional journey in Australia over thirty years ago as a physiotherapist and coach. From her wide ranging work in elite sport and the performing arts, to her continued clinical interest in chronic and complex presentations, Joanne’s path of inquiry lies in what connects us in the deeply human experience of movement.
Joanne is the creator of the JEMS approach, a holistic but meticulously clinically reasoned method for integrating the science and the art of clinical practice. Through two decades of prolific teaching across multiple countries, Joanne’s work is now used by physiotherapists in a wide array of clinical settings, from paediatrics, neurology and falls prevention through to hypermobility and sports performance, and her work has underpinned an array of research projects in Sweden.
Joanne’s books, including “Stability, Sport and Performance Movement”, have been translated into a number of languages. Her most recent book, “The Power and the Grace: A Professional’s Guide to Ease and Efficiency in Functional Movement”, is also highly recommended.
